Nazir Habib | 10 years ago | Reply 'Spot fixing' well said, 'yes spot fixing'. How can these people arrive at these figures beats the imagination. Free talking, wild guessing and hoping to score a 'bulls eye' by firing in the dark and hoping 'Uncle Sam' will dole out the rest. Mr. Gillani's government is not at all galvinic. Its lost and is miserably splashing about in a torrent of flood water. Just PRs. four billion in the PM's flood relief account? Peanuts. Why dont they use their minds, education, cut their expenses and use their hands and feet to do something like the common citizenry is doing, rather than getting loans from the World bank, IMF, and ADB and perilously adding to our foreign debt. With Salams and best wishes.
